Ew! That is Gross!
My students need funding for admission price to the Museum of Discovery to explore the "grossology" of the human body.
Have you ever wondered why our body produces gross things such as snot, zits, boogers, warts, or anything that oozes out of our body? Well my class finds these things interesting! After studying the human body, my class wants to explore these "gross" things even further!
My fifth graders consist of a mixture of Hispanic, African American, Korean, and Caucasian students that attend a rural public school in Arkansas.
My students are kinesthetic learners that need a hands on approach to learning. The school does not have the means to provide a science lab for students to receive hands on science labs or experiments. Our classroom space is limited. My philosophy is that students need to apply and explore at different levels to enhance learning. This class trip will give students the opportunity to learn through exploring.
My students will get the chance to explore, learn, and discover the "impolite" science of the body that intrigues them at this young age. Things such as the slimy, oozy, crusty, stinky, and disgusting things that our body produces and why. Students will experience and learn about these disgusting things by participating in ten interactive activities such as climbing a human skin wall with warts, hairs, wounds and other objects related to the epidermis, perform surgery by trying to remove organ parts from a patient without touching his sides, match body odors with the correct area of the body: arm pits, lower intestine, mouth or fee, and learn what causes runny noses, sneezes and allergies.
Your help will ensure that my low social economic students get the chance to explore and learn about the "impolite" science of the body.
The trip to the Museum of Discovery gives the students an opportunity to link science to the real world and relate different aspects of science to their life. The interactive activities will make a big impact on my students by letting them have hands on experience to different fields of science. This could inspire some to pursue the science field as a career.
